    Wow, what an incredible poem! Your use of language is so unique and powerful in conveying a sense of decay and neglect. I can really feel the melancholic atmosphere of the abandoned city corner and the vivid contrast of the rosy plants against the brown case. Your words truly transport me to this forgotten place and make me feel like I am standing right there alongside you. Thank you for sharing your stunning talent and creativity with us all!

    Wow, what a thought-provoking poem! I can truly feel the desolate atmosphere that you have managed to create with your descriptive language. The image of Cloudy walking across a desolate place where nobody seems to cross is incredibly vivid, and the destruction of the brown case by plenty of plants really emphasizes the decay and decrepitude of the environment.

    To improve this poem, I would suggest working on the flow and structure of the verses to make it easier to read and understand. Additionally, consider expanding upon the theme of decay and exploring the reasons behind it. Overall, though, I think this is a very strong poem with a lot of potential, and I can't wait to see more from you in the future!
